Nutrition Counseling

OFFICE HOURS: Monday – Thursday: 8:00am to 5:00pm Friday: 8:00am to 3:00pm

Nutrition Counseling 

The Health Center at Auraria offers nutrition consultations with Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) at no charge. The RDNs can support you, provide recommendations and answer your questions whether you’re trying to manage a chronic condition, lose or gain weight, optimize athletic performance or develop a personalized healthy eating routine.

The first appointment may be up to one hour in length, with follow-up visits being shorter. Before the first visit, you will be asked to complete a Nutrition Packet and if this is your first visit to the Health Center at Auraria, the New Patient Packet. During the visit you’ll meet with the RDN and, with your consent, a nutrition student intern. After the visit, you’ll be asked to complete an evaluation form.

During most appointments a student intern will be in the appointment and, if you are interested, will contact you for continued support. After your initial appointment, an action plan will be recommended including dietary information and recommendations for follow-up visits.
